Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by J06281845 Good food - Thin walls - Fitness Room (needs work)
The rooms here were clean and generally comfortable. The walls seemed to be a little thin. I do not think my neighbor had the TV very loud but it seemed to come through the walls and conversations were not very private. The HVAC system worked thankfully as both a temperature monitor and a sound buffer.
I was able to use the fitness room. Both Treadmills are in need of repair or replacing. The control buttons are mutilated beyond recognition. I got them to work but through a workaround.
Breakfast was great and the cinnamon buns are my downfall.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Heather1384 Worst experience ever!
So I booked a room here because others from our group were staying here. I arrived late for check-in, and upon my arrival I was informed that the room I got had no working shower in the room. My response was I would find another place to stay. After looking around there were no other hotels aviable in the surrounding areas, and since in was almost 1 in the morning I was forced into taking the room. My other friends starting at the property said I could use there shower. In sorts problem solved.
After getting into the room I immediately noticed the room smelled like paint, so I went to turn I the a/c but apparently that didn't work either. I tired opening the balcony door but the noise from the extremely close freeway was unbearable. The noise with the balcony door closed was still very loud but with the tv on was tolerable.
In the morning after talking with others from my group I found out the room had originally been given to another member of our group. That person was in the room for a long time before discovering the shower didn't work. House keeping didn't come back on a re-clean the room. Since I knew the person it wasn't the worst case but still unsettling.
Also the hair dyer in the room only worked for less the five minutes. After that it turned off and wouldn't turn back on.

Overall, my stay was great. The housekeeping staff tried coming into my room even though I had my do not disturb sign, but that was alright. Breakfast was great and the lady handling it was very helpful and super nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BCDD Older facility but a great stay.
Friendly reception on arrival and great to have laundry facility available to guests. Despite being an older building, the amenities were good. The breakfast room is a bit small (crowded) but still a good offering. Convenient to the highway without too much noise.

Thanks to the Holiday Inn Express La Mesa team for going above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. As a frequent traveler, little items such as welcome gift basket, bottled water and choice of snack amenities, is truly a delight. I know it is not required, but it sure is nice after a long day of travel.
Many thanks ans I will surely return.
